There are 2 types of textile certificates:

Those that certify raw materials of plant or animal origin such as cotton, wool, hemp, among others, and that are certified under the EU regulation, the same standard for organic food.

Or those that have to do with the products that are manufactured with those raw materials and that follow sustainable production criteria, such as the substances used in manufacturing, dyes, product traceability, packaging, transport, environmental policy and labor policy.


The main standard in the world for ecological textile certification is currently GOTs.

International standard created by members of the textile industry and other organizations, which has the collaboration of IFOAM to agree on harmonized criteria that could be applied worldwide. The standard covers the processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, marketing and distribution of textile products. A textile product with the GOTs label grade “organic” must contain at least 95% certified organic fibers while those labeled “made with organic material” must contain no less than 70% certified organic fibers.


Developed by the Oeko Tex Association, a research group and laboratories in Europe and Japan, and applied throughout the world. It focuses on the limitation of certain harmful substances during manufacturing and the verification that these limitations are met.

The OEKO-TEX® Association has developed three different standards.

OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. It represents customer confidence and high product safety. If a textile item carries the STANDARD 100 label, you can be sure that every component of this item, i.e. every thread, button and other accessories, has been tested for harmful substances and therefore the item is harmless to human health.
